Boutique slated for historic Montreal site
Tidan Hospitality and Real Estate Group plans to convert a historic social club in Montreal into an 80-key boutique hotel, Montreal’s Gazette reports. The Mount Stephen Club closed in December 2011.
The 19th-century building’s stone façade will serve as the high-end hotel’s entrance, and an 11-story addition will rise behind the existing structure. Once home to Canada Pacific Railway founding president George Stephen, the late Victorian property features 24-karat gold doorknobs.
The hotel “will be integrated into the club,” Ian Copnick, Tidan’s general counsel, told the newspaper. “If you don’t cast your eyes upward you won’t see anything different.”
Tidan is working to obtain project permits from the city. The real estate company acquired the club for $4 million in 2006, and its portfolio includes 60 properties in the U.S. and Canada.
